Four Faces of Omarska_c_Andrea Peković

Entfällt: Four Faces of Omarska // Public Session #2


Since the members of »Four Faces of Omarska« have withdrawn the exhibition, it is closed from 18/October.

»The statement issued by the Maxim Gorki Theatre of 14/October 2023 pushed us into the reality ruled by an injunction to accept the world without Palestinians. We, gathered around the exhibition Four Faces of Omarska, state that we cannot speak about Omarska without speaking about Gaza. We therefore withdraw the exhibition and all accompanying programs from the Berliner Herbstsalon.«

Authors of Four Faces of Omarska and participants of the Public Sessions (Damir Arsenijević, Ivana Bago, Abdelrahman Elbashir, Jasmina Husanović, Nusreta Sivac)


Thinking about the multilayered history of the Omarska mine, the session brings into view how globalisation and local dynamics shape ethnic violence and resistance. It focuses on affective labour as protest and rebellion, which goes beyond trauma management and explores traumatic knowledge as a challenge to the ethno-capitalist governance of life.
